SOURCE: saharareporters.comMr. Ibrahim Magu was appointed as Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in November 2015 by President Muhammadu Buhari. The appointment was made by the President sequel to section 171 (1) of the Constitution. After Mr. Magu had acted in that capacity for over a year the Senate refused to confirm his appointment as the substantive Chairman of the EFCC. However, as President Buhari was satisfied with the performance of Mr. Magu he decided to retain him as the Acting Chairman of the EFCC.  A couple of days ago, the Senate revisited the matter. In a rather bizarre move, the Senate decided to combine legislative powers with executive functions by passing a resolution which purportedly directed the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo

Femi Falana: No Justification For Continued Detention Of El-Zakzaky

Local
SOURCE: saharareporters.comIn a reckless demonstration of official impunity Mr. Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Mohammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity purportedly issued a statement yesterday on behalf of the Presidency to justify the illegal detention of Sheikh Ibraheem Elzakzaky and his wife, Hajia Ibraheema Elzakzaky. In the incendiary statement Mr. Shehu claimed that the valid and subsisting order of the federal high court made on December 2, 2016 would not be obeyed by the federal government on the dubious ground that the Sheikh is in "protective custody" while the justification for holding the wife is that she is taking good care of her husband in the illegal custody. According to Mr. Shehu, "ElZakzaky is held for his own good. If you set him free, what do...
